DIY Solid Sugar Scrub Cubes Without Soap {lavender and rose scent}

I LOVE these sugar scrub cubes without soap!

I like them even better than the lemon and orange sugar scrub cubes I did with soap because they are not as hard and I find them easier to rub on the skin.

I made this recipe as an experiment to see if the cubes could hold their shape without the help of soap.

And it has worked really well.

I have made one batch using Shea butter and another one with cocoa butter.

The ones I made with cocoa butter are firmer and hold their shape better.

The sugar scrub cubes made using Shea butter are softer and perhaps are best kept in the fridge.

The sugar granules will exfoliate the skin leaving it smoother, moisturized, and smelling divine.

Shea Butter Sugar Scrub Cubes Recipe

These cubes are made with Shea butter and lavender essential oil.

I have used Shea butter because is a superb moisturizer and healer.

These exfoliating sugar cubes are perfect for those with dry and rough skin.

I love using them and I don’t even need to use body lotion because the skin is perfectly moisturized.

Rose Sugar Scrub Cubes Without Soap


How To Make Them

Make these cubes in the same way as the other ones.

The only thing you have to change is the Shea butter for cocoa butter and the lavender essential oil for the rose.

And, of course, the pink colorant.

I like cocoa butter but I find its scent too overpowering.

In this recipe, I can’t hardly smell the aroma of rose essential oil, and only for this reason, I would recommend buying deodorized cocoa butter.

After melting the cocoa butter, add the almond oil, vitamin E oil, and pink colorant. Stir.

Combining rose sugar scrub ingredients

Keep adding the rose essential oil and sugar.

Stir until all the ingredients are thoroughly mixed.

Pour it into molds (like these ones) and place it in the freezer for a few minutes.

Once the mixture is firm, unmold it and cut it into small cubes.

Now they are ready to use. I hope you like them as much as I do!

How to Use Them

Some people wonder if they can exfoliate their faces with sugar scrub cubes.

Personally, I haven’t used them yet, but I guess you could. I will moisten the cube to make smaller pieces and then very gently rub the face with it.

Don’t use it on your face if you have sensitive skin or any skin condition (rosacea, acne, etc).

Actually, this is the exact same way I use them in the body, the only difference is that I rub them more vigorously.

How Long Will They Last?

Up to 6 months approx.

Keep them in a cool place to preserve them for longer.

Since these sugar scrub cubes are softer than the ones I made using soap, I like to keep them in the fridge in a container with a lid.
